Play Kitchen or french toast with shaker cheese!!!!

Growing up my favorite thing that my brother and I played with together was a refurbished play kitchen my grandfather had built out of an old entertainment stand. He used a Pink hospital "puke" basin for the sink in the kitchen and it had simple doors for the fridge. Nothing fancy just simple and it lasted for ever! However being in the military and moving a lot my parents decided to give it away during one of our moves after us kids out grew it...Understandably however  I still miss it.

Several months back I noticed on pinterest an old T.V. stand that was turned into a play kitchen and instantly I knew I had to build one for my kids.

I found two blogs both with kitchens that I love!!!!! Both blogs have picture tutorials as well.
Giggleberry creations and Freshcutflours

I already had lots of white paint so I decided in an attempt to keep it cheap I would paint it white...however I am in LOVE with Fresh cut flowers red version!!!!

I started with an old TV stand made out of oak
I added Some doors..reused the old hinges and moved the
wall over for the fridge and Oven. Cutting out the sink was fun...
I found I can not cut a circle that well lol

Some Paint decorations and done!!! I plan to add more accessories to
 it later I want to add a dry erase board to the fridge and a few other things!

My Master Of Disaster making me french toast with shaker
 cheese lol YUMMY!!!

Over all it took a couple days only a few bucks and my kids play with it EVERY DAY!!!
Time well spent!!!!
